Bradford City are hoping to sign Chesterfield’s Kristian Dennis according to a report from journalist Alan Nixon.
The 27-year-old striker signed for Chesterfield in 2016 after he impressed while at Stockport County. He looks like he could be the latest player to come from non-league football and be a star. He played for the likes of Mossley and Woodley Sports and he has made the transition to the EFL look easy. Even though Chesterfield have struggled this season and are facing a battle against relegation, Dennis has been brilliant having scored 15 goals in 33 appearances.
This has attracted plenty of attention and earlier in the transfer window there were reports that Bradford wanted to sign him. However those reports died down and it seemed like Chesterfield might keep one of their best players. However those reports and the interest is back as the Bantams hope to wrap up this deal before the deadline closes at 11pm tonight.
This will be a very tough decision for Chesterfield to make. They are in desperate need for money because of the various financial issues they had in the last few years and they would be able to get some money from the sale of Dennis. However if they lose their top scorer, they will be in serious risk of getting relegated and the financial penalties of playing in non-league football would be far worse than the money you get back from Dennis. So Bradford will need to put in a tantalizing offer to lure Dennis to Valley Parade.
